BMW Zupra: Here’s What The New Toyota Supra Looks Like With A BMW Z4 Face

While the BMW Z4 and the all-new Toyota Supra share a common platform, as well as multiple components and even engines, they do look way more different than, let’s say, a Subaru BRZ and a Toyota 86 do.

But then again, one (Z4) is a roadster, and the other (Supra), a coupe. So, what would happen if they also shared the same bodystyle?

As you know, the new Z4 was first to the table, featuring a wide twin-kidney grille design for the front, large air intakes, sweptback headlights and a dynamically-styled hood. The Supra, on the other hand, has an even more aggressive-looking front fascia, with massive teardrop headlights and flared wheel arches.

BMW didn’t really take any massive risks with the profile and rear end design of its latest Z4. The German roadster has sharp yet clean lines, while the L-shaped taillights add more visual width to the rear end, helping the car seem more planted.

Toyota went another way with the Supra, giving it a more distinctive form factor, with powerful rear wheel arches to mirror the front ones and a more “exotic” rear pillar design, if you will. It looks more like a supercar than the BMW Z4, which was probably the plan all along.

But what if someone took the Supra’s aggressive rear end and combined it with the Z4’s more…PG-13 front fascia? Well, it so happens that someone did, with designer Kleber Silva mixing the two models together to create the BMW Supra, or the Toyota Z4, whichever works for you.

The end result is, let’s say interesting, as it makes you think about what a hypothetical BMW Z4 Coupe could look like. Otherwise, the two design languages don’t blend as well as one might initially think, which is evident as soon as you look at the rear, the creases on the hood and the shape of the front spoiler.

  • nastinupe

    Looks better as a BMW. That Supra nose is fugly.

  • donald seymour

    I absolutely love how the Supra looks, but I may be in the minority. The only thing that grinds my gears is the lack of a manual.

    • Mr. EP9

      Well, like Ford, they said they were considering it if demand is strong enough buuuut I don’t see it happening. An alternative is the M240i Coupe whose performance is nearly identical to the Supra although the 0-60 in the automatic might be a bit off.

    How about with the Z4 ass instead? Petsonally, I think the Supra face is fine.

      Is that good or bad?

  • Bo Hanan

    That image cannot make Toyota happy. Neither does the fact that were still talking about the new Supras origins after its reveal.

  • Shobin Drogan

    This looks awesome. It looks muscular and aggressive. Unlike the supra…

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    • Trackhacker

      Yep….as much as I don’t like BMW, your better off getting the Z4 because at least it has the brand appeal to make other people think your rich haha

  • SteersUright

    Looks better.

  • Fabián Montiel

    Zupr4, but honestly tho, this looks better than the Supra.

  • MJ Coffey
